Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that he doesn’t need his parents to be part of a family.

I begged RJ to review Charlie's Hero and because she's a star, RJ said yes. Nic Starr is a new author to me and I'm so happy to find another author to read. I'm going to say up front, Nic, you left it there?????? Talk about leave me panting for more. Charlie's Hero is a gentle love-story. The angst is there but it never overrides the burgeoning relationship between the two men. I wanted to throttle Charlie's parents and give Josh's brother a kick up the backside. But more than anything I wanted Charlie and Josh to get their HEA because they really deserved it.
